Going the Distance

Athletes often embark on their careers as children or teenagers, carrying the training mindset throughout their lives. The pursuit of competition and victory becomes the focal point of their existence. Each new level of play brings them closer to the ultimate goal of winning a world championship or a national championship game. Coaches train individuals who then come together as a team. However, there are times when teams lose their edge, and the game suffers. Athletes also suffer while trying to regain their focus, motivation, or stamina. This period of trying to get back to the top is tough and stressful, prompting athletes to take a self-inventory and question if they truly want to continue in their profession. When the answer is yes but training alone is not enough, athletes need to examine their balance.

Balance is essential in life, and the key to finding it lies in nurturing three fundamental aspects of the human experience: mind, body, and spirit. When any of these elements is out of alignment, unnecessary stress can occur. In fact, achieving balance is the most effective way to alleviate stress. In moderation, stress can foster competition, artistry, and ambition, all of which contribute to personal growth and a stronger society. These are the foundations of athletics, and many remarkable achievements in athletic history have arisen from individuals experiencing stress. However, excessive stress can lead to health problems and diminish one’s ability to focus on essential tasks.
